6:05pm
it. the n-f-l store at fisherman's wharf was filled with people buying red and gold gear today. >> i am a colin kaepernick fan i was also a linebacker, and it is difficult to catch him he is so fast. there is a reason because they're doing so well because of colin kaepernick. if he can do well and they will do well, they will cool wonderful. kron 4 talked with a super bowl champion. who used to play for the raiders. about how the 49ers can quench their quest for six! thousands of 49er fans will be heading to new orleans could be a challenge. kron 4's charres clifford has details on what it could cost to make the trip. >> reporter: so, maybe your thinking about catching a
6:06pm
plane to new orleans for the super bowl. let's say you want to leave on saturday febuary 2nd, watch the game on sunday and then come home monday morning. i checked a few online travel sites, and roundtrip flights from sfo to new orleans on those dates are running between 1,275 dollars, which includes multiple stops along the way, up to 1,887 dollar for a direct flight.. round trip. now, of course there's a lot of variation in the price if you're willing to leave earlier in the week or come back later, but expect to pay over a thousand dollars if you want to fly to the game. now, maybe you're the adventurous sort and you're thinking of making it a road trip. it's 2,272 miles from san francisco to new orleans, if you consider that the average car gets about 20 miles per gallon and gas is running an average of 3.30 per gallon right now, a round trip would cost about $750 dollars. not to bad, but expect to spend more than 60 hours driving...
6:07pm
might want to pack a snack. >> another option, believe it or not, is that you could actually take an amtrak train. the upside is that a ticket from the bay area to new orleans would only cost about 300 bucks, the downside is that it's a 78 hour trip, which means you would have to spend more than three straight days on a train.. and it detours through chicago. finally, there's always the bus. a roundtrip on greyhound would cost between 200 and 300 dollars. if you from san francisco at 10am on friday febuary 1st, you would arrive in new orleans around 2:40 sunday afternoon. in the newsroom, charles clifford, kron 4. >> pam: most of us will watch superbowl - 47 on t-v. but if you are a die-hard fan who plans to see the game in person. kron 4's vicki liviakis is here to fill us in on the cost of a ticket to the superbowl. vicki. >> pam, as we all know this game is the holy grail for football lovers. but fans of the 49ers be prepared. the superbowl comes with a super-sized price tag. let's talk numbers. first off, the nfl held a lottery to make only about a thousand tickets available to purchase. if you don't win the lottery and are on the
6:08pm
lookout for a ticket, welcome to the secondary market. where as of monday morning the average price for a seat at the superbowl is $3,195 dollars. ka-ching! the cheapest we could find is $1,785 dollars. of course the official list prices according to the nfl are $850, $950, and $1,250 for the superbowl upper and lower bowl and club seats but that's daydreaming. one online ticket for a good seat was going for $12,575 dollars, but even if you're willing to pay thru the nose, there's no telling if the ticket is real until gametime. the only guarenteed secondary ticket seller is the nfl ticketmaster ticket exchange. buy from anybody else and you're on your own. good luck. in san francisco, vicki liviakis, kron 4 news. >> pam: stay with kron 4 as we follow the 49ers to the super bowl and the new orleans. constant updates
